From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-- In this gentle, rhyming story, Benjamin Badger, who's going to be three, refuses to take a nap. His mother explains how other animals such as butterflies and grasshoppers rest. She continues to whisper verses as she tucks Ben into bed, and after he has finally fallen asleep, she indulges in a snooze herself. The rhyme is somewhat uneven, sounding forced at the end, but eloquent when the sleeping animals are described. Nolan's soft-toned watercolors with fine pen outlines complement the text. His illustrations of Ben and his cozy home make this an appealing book for young children, but they truly excel when he depicts the beauty of the natural world with its dozing dragonflies and blissful bullfrogs. A good choice to promote naptime, the book also provides an excellent, low-key introduction to the sublimity of nature. --Lori A. Janick, Parkwood Elementary School, Pasadena, TX
